Congress honors Sentinels of Freedom

Original post made on Nov 12, 2009

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution Nov. 2 honoring the San Ramon-based Sentinels of Freedom. U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney (D., 11th) authored the resolution, which commends Sentinels of Freedom for its work offering comprehensive support to veterans severely injured in the line of duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001.

We can always count on our fine Congressman Jerry McNerney to find ways to honor our veterans. He is a strong supporter of the veterans and their families. Thank you Jerry McNerney.

It is good that McNerney initiated this resolution to honor our vets, and I applaud him for that. However, the liberal policies he supports undermine our military and the security of our country...for instance, treating terrorists as ordinary criminals and offering them legal protections our citizens receive, supporting reductions in our defense budget and cuts in our missle defense capabilities, supporting an administration who can't call a terrorist a terrorist, supporting an administration that is ambivalent about whether we should fight terrorists in Iraq or Afghanistan. It is easy to appear to be a good patriot by paying lip service to our soldiers, but real support lies in taking actions that actually make a difference in their ability to succeed in their mission.

As the founder of Hats Off America over 7 years and over 12,000 100 different events to raise money for Gold Star Families Jerry is the only Politician to come show support at my events letting these families know they are not forgotten after they get their flags from the coffins of their loved ones.I am saddened that even with all the press I have received that the town ship I live in did not come out as I had even my last event I had 4 gold Star Families and only a couple of local residents to honer these families. It was with a tear in my eye and sadness in my hart I had to give up this 501c3 foundation with #20,600 for one family $1,000 for three families and $500 for Warriors foundation and Jerry has donated his time and money to these families so I say it is easy to accuse some one of being in a category, as it would be easy for me to put someone in a category that talks but takes no actions to honer or help families that have paied the ultimate price for freedom
